Crookwath Cottage, Keswick, Cumbria, UK

A traditional Lakeland stone cottage set high up in the fells above Ullswater. Set at 370 meters high up in the Fells above Ullswater. Sleeps 2-6 in 3 bedrooms. £750-£1385 per week. The ultimate peaceful place for complete stillness and silence.

Only the sounds of nature to nurture your soul set 350 meters above Matterdale in the very remote valley of Dowthwaite in the heart of the Lake District National Park.

Stunning views all around… walk directly onto the fells and leave the car behind for the week.

The drive from the main road is stunning: narrow, twisty and with wide sensational views at every turn; you are in the quietest valley but still at 1,200 feet.

The cottage, like any well-loved family home, is crammed with original art, photographs, books, games, open fires and much else to excite young and old.

The kitchen is big, beamed and Aga-simmered, with wooden cupboards and plenty of all you need; a squishy sofa at one end next to an overflowing bookcase ensures whoever cooks will have company.

The original range is now an open fire in the long sitting room with contemporary sofa and dark red walls.
